No. 0 Nate Britt, PG, jr, 6-1, 175: Dependable reserve likely to enter season as a starter amid Marcus Paige injury
No. 1 Theo Pinson, SF, so, 6-6, 205: Will replace J.P. Tokoto in the starting lineup and is expected to be as versatile
No. 2 Joel Berry, PG, so, 6-0, 195: Might have been UNC’s second-best player in the preseason, coach Roy Williams said
No. 3 Kennedy Meeks, C, jr, 6-10, 260: Faded down the stretch after a strong start last season -- can he find consistency?
Never miss a local story.
No. 4 Isaiah Hicks, PF, jr, 6-9, 235: Former heralded recruit showed flashes last season but bigger things are expected now that he’s a junior
No. 5 Marcus Paige, PG, sr, 6-2, 175: Will miss first few weeks with a hand injury but should take his place as one of the best players in the country when he returns
No. 11 Brice Johnson, PF, sr, 6-10, 230: Offense has never been a question for him but defense and consistency remain works in progress
No. 13 Kanler Coker, SG, jr, 6-4, 200: Former quarterback on the football team switched sports in the offseason, adds some practice depth
No. 24 Kenny Williams, SG, fr, 6-4, 175: Played well in the preseason and in the exhibition and could make a meaningful contribution earlier than expected.
No. 30 Stilman White, PG, jr, 6-1, 175: 2012 NCAA tournament cult hero could provide some meaningful early minutes with Paige out
No. 32 Luke Maye, PF, fr, 6-8, 230: Versatile forward can shoot from the outside; probably won’t be expected to contribute this season
No. 42 Joel James, C, sr, 6-11, 280: Progressed nicely in second half of last season and became valuable post contributor off the bench
No. 44 Justin Jackson, SF, so, 6-8, 200: Might be the most naturally talented player on the team, has to take the next step for UNC to reach potential
